A: Orbit products made of brass have a trace amount of lead as a by-product of manufacturing. Orbit products are designed to be safe and exceed all Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission requirements. California has a state-specific law that requires a warning whenever any amount of lead is present. Orbit's policy is to comply with the law.
A: This tool is about 14 1/2 Inches.
A: Various meter box locking lids used a slot, or in this case a not-so-straight key slot to lock the lid; many today just use the not-so-even five-sided bolt to lock the lids. When all else fails to turn the water off to a house, most jump to the meter; some home's yard watering systems tap the line between the meter and the house, so secure the home does nothing for the yard watering manifold.
A: Water meter key
A: Hi Girtz. Thank you for your question. Although not shown or explained on the sites picture, the key like piece is used to up your water main cover. There is usually an inch-long oblong hole at the base or top of the cover. You would insert the “key”, turn the handle 90 degrees and lift the cover up. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC
A: No Torque Pressure~In Poundage Needed>>Your Own Hands Are Enough,To Turn>ALL Gas& Water Valves ~Around Your Home Only!!
A: Torque pressure in pounds, or newtons, is measured when tightening a nut or bolt; usually enough to keep the nut or bolt from coming undone and stopping before either breaks or sheers. This tool does not measure torque. Most Gas and Water line valves are 90-degree turns; usually the valve's stem is parallel to the line if open, across the line if closed (think of it as a gate), and is usually (if well maintained) as easy to turn as most bathroom door knobs. If you're asking about required tightness of a water, gas or other type of valve (beyond the above) you need to refer to that particular valve's manufacturer. If you're asking what the breaking strength of this tool is, go to the manufacturer's website; hint: if you broke this wrench trying to close a valve, either the valve is broken or already closed.
